Listmania: Metal Noise Top #5 Underground Metal Bands to Watch in 2022!

We’ve had Singles, EPs and Albums over the last 3 days so now it’s time to turn our attention to the future and 2022. Here’s our run down of 5 Underground Metal acts of all shapes and sizes that we think you should keep your eyes on for all the right reasons – and as there is absolutely no cross over with the other mentions, this is a truly unique offering.

Beyond Extinction are a band who could have appeared on several of our awards season lists had it not been for the *ahem* rules. January saw them release a bone crushing EP “The Fatal Flaws Of Humankind” surpassing 28k of Spotify Streams and then they went back into the studio with Matt Williams at Soundlab studio (Collected, Hunting For Wolves) for more.

Their 2019 Technical Groove Metal debut full length “Compelled To Suffer” is a powerhouse record but the departure of vocalist Tom Gardner to form Pulse left a void. So while they weren’t actually even away, the return of Harbinger with new vocalist Dilan Alves and December single “Hate File” puts them firmly back on the left hand path to destruction…
